Amethyst Aether Blog Hop

I'm getting this up really late because I'm just really over-extended right now, but I was part of a challenge with Andrew Thornton - he sold kids with gorgeous beads called Amethyst Aether.  He did send along a wonderful polymer clay super-secret pendant he made for everyone, but I didn't get a chance to use it yet.  But here's the beads, and what I made!



The beads are all so gorgeous, I wanted to use them all.  I do have plans for the rest, but here's what I got accomplished. First, these earrings.  These beads all just wanted to be together, so I let them!

 Next, I knew I wanted to use these totally gorgeous stick beads in a necklace, and so I made a multi-strand necklace using all the beads I possibly could from the luxury mix.  I do like how it turned out!




Now, if I ever get around to making more things, I will let you know!  Thanks for sponsoring this challenge Andrew!  Sorry I'm late with the post!

Love the necklace with the stick beads!

I do love both pieces. I can see why the beads in the earrings wanted to be together. They are lovely. I think the stick beads are great on a multistrand necklace. I love using many beads of the mix together. It always looks so nice. A great necklace to wear any time!

The earrings are really sweet. Sometimes the beads just speak to you and you have to listen! And I love the luxurious feel of the necklace! It looks so opulent with all the layers! Great job! Thanks so much for participating! I loved seeing everything you made!
